Powercuts continue to worry Delhi, protests turn violent

Powercuts continue to worry Delhi
New Delhi, June 11: Even after the Centre promised immediate relief, power cuts continue to trouble Delhi citizens.

A IBN Live report said that in Jaffrabad, protests against power cuts turned violent with protesters setting ablaze a bus.

On Tuesday, Centre assured that power cut issue will soon be solved. GAIL is diverting some of the gas allocated to NTPC to Delhi's Bawana plant, said the government. The gas will help the plant produce the additional 400 MW.

Also, the union Power Minister Piyush Goyal on Tuesday set a 10-day deadline to restore transmission lines which were damaged by a storm on May 30.

On Tuesday, AAP workers staged protest in the city. The party leaders said that AAP chief Arvind Kejriwal will seek an appointment with Prime Minister Narendra Modi.

"We met Arvind Kejriwal. He has decided to seek an appointment with the PM to discuss Delhi's power crisis," AAP leader Sanjay Singh said.

Meanwhile, the heat wave in Delhi touched a record high last week, adding to the woes.
